My teen dog Buddy and my teen 18 year old daughter have a love hate relationship. He drives her crazy sometimes with his attention seeking antics when she is revising for her exams, and when she takes care of him for me if I am out of town he can be diabolic with her. My daughter had a major school exam today, that she has been preparing for 3 years. It did not go well. When I picked her up she cried so hard. By the time we got home she had calmed down but she had make up all down her face and she was pale and shaky. When I opened the door Buddy came charging over as usual but then kind of pulled up short without actually jumping all over my Darling daughter. He sat down and his ears pricked up in the way that they do when he is concentrating or trying to decipher something and then he lay down in front of her and put his bum up in the air in that kind of submissive play gesture that they make with other dogs. Am describing this in detail because usually he would be trying to kiss her face and wrestle her to the floor. We sat outside and had lunch on the terrasse. She cried some more and Buddy had still not even tried to touch her once. Then at the end of lunch she said Mum be discrete but look and pointed Under the table. He was sitting next to her with his head on her lap gazing soulfully up at her. Buddy is a boisterous rough and tumble 9 month old and is in the face of everyone he meets. But today I know for a fact he felt and sensed that my daughter was in distress and he was working out in his Young brain what he should do for the best to comfort her. Please send some positive thoughts to my daughter and hope for a miracle with her exams. And I would love to know if your dog sometimes has this 6th sense.
